Are you ready for an escape from the sweaty crowds of the Orlando theme parks with Original Orlando Tours to a hidden local beach at Cape Canaveral? If so, we’ll be by to pick you up and leave behind Disney, Universal Studios and Sea World behind for a day to enjoy the pristine sands of one of the most private and beautiful beaches in Florida!
Located on a barrier island near Cape Canaveral, this 25 miles of pristine Atlantic Ocean beach, dunes and Mosquito Lagoon is the longest expanse of undeveloped land along the East Coast of Florida. This stretch of sand on the Atlantic Ocean is a federally protected area and largely only known to local Central Floridians. You will also have some extraordinary views of the Kennedy Space Center from your Cape Canaveral beach paradise!
Enjoy up to 2 hours of beach time before we head to lunch at a legendary iconic restaurant for freshly caught rock shrimp (other options available). Rock shrimp is a local delicacy which tastes much like lobster and melts in your mouth like butter.
After your day away with Original Orlando Tours, you arrive back refreshed and re-charged to head back into the throngs of the tourist zone for the rest of your Orlando vacation!
Approximately 4 hours total (add two to three hours for any upgrade above). Please note that Orlando traffic conditions can vary widely while I-4 is under construction. This tour typically operates all year.

Rock shrimp were once considered “garbage shrimp” (they were also known as “peanuts”, “trash” and “hardheads”) and were largely ignored by fisherman because their hard shells made them difficult to eat. In 1968 local fisherman Rodney Thompson designed a high-speed tail splitter and started Cape Canaveral Shrimp to process rock shrimp from a growing fleet of boats based in Port Canaveral. Today over 5 million pounds of rock shrimp are harvested each year; most of that haul is still processed at Cape Canaveral Shrimp for distribution around the world. Sunny recommends having your rock shrimp served broiled and dipped in butter, just like lobster!
